This is a late night shot of a tipi that I and a couple of friends stayed in while attending a four day music festival in Stephenville, Texas. It was a great way to camp.

First tweaked in ACR. Boosted exposure, vibrance, saturation and reduced temperature. Then opened in CS4. Burned some light on the trees on the left and light spill from the teepee lower right. Put through Topaz Denoise 3. Saved for web, USM, Border.

Also, those colors at the top of the poles are multi-colored ribbons getting whipped around by the wind during the 8 second exposure.
